Voxengo releases Voxformer PC VST plug-in - Press Release
Apr 28, 2004: Voxformer is a multi-functional vocal channel strip plug-in in PC VST format. Combining several professional quality processing modules, Voxformer was designed to be a comprehensive solution for all your vocal processing needs - be it a spoken or a sung vocal performance.
The coolest feature of Voxformer is its one-knob vocal compressor. Using only a single knob you can get a tight, open and definitive professional vocal sound in no time. You do not have to worry about common ratio, release, attack and make-up gain controls since they are automatically selected by the advanced compression algorithm. Moreover, Voxformer features two compressors of this type allowing you to apply either a two-band or a two-stage (serial) vocal compression. For two-band compression Voxformer splits the audio signal into two spectral parts, by means of a switchable crossover filter.
Voxformer also features a de-esser with switchable center frequency, threshold and ratio. Noise gate is also available. This noise gate--in a manner similar to a compressor--was designed to bring the easiness of tuning while providing excellent sonic results. For those who like the saturated vocal sound Voxformer implements a special saturation module which applies a smooth vintage saturation. Another useful thing Voxformer has to offer is the presence boosting module which you can use to add some shine and space to the vocals.
To simplify the control over these processing modules Voxformer implements residue listening which allows you to hear what gets removed during de-essing and noise gate operation, and what is being added by the presence module.
As a finishing touch, Voxformer offers you a flexible 4-band equalizer (pre/post selectable) with a real-time output stage fast Fourier transform (FFT) spectrum analyzer display. Each equalizer band can be switched to a parametric, low-shelf, high-shelf, low-pass or a high-pass filtering mode.
